So it’s coming to the end of 2017 and I turned 20 this month – if there’s ever a time for me to reflect, it’s now, and what a year it’s been. I managed to pull through a horrific bout of depression that was at it’s prime around this time 365 days ago. I was bed ridden for most of the Christmas holidays and I … Continue reading 2017: A Reflection
They say it’s better to learn from others’ mistakes, but what if you don’t have time for that?

I’ve been putting this off for at least 3 weeks now, but it’s time you guys, my lovely readers, knew the truth. In a slightly unexpected turn of events, I ended up leaving my job, and I am actually back at university…sort of… It’s hard to explain, but the long story short is that the job was not right for me. As a creative individual, … Continue reading I Should Probably Tell You Something…
So I have just finished my first week at my new job (which was great, thanks for asking!), and I thought as the summer holidays draw to a close, I would write a list of my favourite things that I got up to over the last few months. This is purely just to document some memories and remind myself of how far I’ve come since … Continue reading Top 20 Things I Got Up To This Summer
It’s time for an update, so let’s sit down and have a chat. And by chat, I mean: you reading what I have to say in this blog that is completely and utterly all about me, so enjoy! I wanted to use my blog to explain some big changes that are happening in my life. Most of my friends, by now, know that I am … Continue reading Life Update: It’s Getting Serious
It’s been way too long since I’ve published a blog post, but it’s okay because despite not posting for over 2 months, my blog is still getting daily views from around the world, which I never expected and I’m super grateful for. I just hope it means that what I’m writing is still entertaining and/or helping people. Today I wanted to address the topic of … Continue reading It’s Time That You Won
Today is Saturday 3rd June. I am on the bus travelling 4 hours south of Tel Aviv in Israel to spend the weekend at a Kibbutz. Today marks a great day in my life – I’ve just seen my first ever camel. Okay, we were driving too fast for me to even see if it had one hump or two, but still, pretty cool. Driving … Continue reading Take It All In
I apologise for the lack of posts recently. Life since my last post was just, to be honest, pretty average. I was having lots of ups and downs, but nothing interesting enough to write about. I had been getting frustrated that things at university still haven’t been amazing, even though I was starting to feel more motivated. All in all, there was nothing that … Continue reading It’s Been A While
As I write this I am on a train on my way home. I haven’t been home since the semester started and I haven’t actually told the fam that I’m coming back (thought it would be a cute surprise). I’m just hoping they haven’t secretly been using my room as a storage space or anything like that!
Today is International Women’s Day (this post will be going out a few days later) and I wasn’t going to mention it in this post at all, however I attended an event yesterday that made me change my mind. Continue reading “Sometimes Good is Good Enough”
In 2 weeks time I will have been at university for 6 months. I just figured that out and it feels weird to type it. How has it been that long already? Where did the time go? It only feels like I arrived to my halls a month or 2 ago. Life is weird.
Seeing as I didn’t expect to experience as big a change as I did, I thought I’d put together some of the things I didn’t get told about before moving away from home to study a degree.
